MILLING: A Milling Machine is one that is designed to remove the metal from a piece of instrument with a revolving.
DRILLING: A common tool for making holes in the instruments to fit screws or to assemble the instruments.
BENDING: It is the process used to curve the blades of surgical instruments and the pointer tips of the dental instruments according to master sample, drawing or DIN book.
Temporary ASSEMBLY OF MILLED COMPONENTS AND INITIAL SETTING
During manufacturing of surgical instruments, ONE-piece forging is performed. So, due to the result of forging, male and female parts are manufactured.
FILING: To removing small amount of material from the surface of a piece of metal or stainless steel instruments. This process is used for getting accurate size. After filing instruments are inspected according to Shape, Design and measurement of the semi finished instruments.
GRINDING WITH GRINDING STONE: Grinding is a metal removing process performed by rotating abrasive wheel that acts as a cutting tool.
To eliminate or break unwanted SHARP EDGES, Grinding stones are used. This process is used to finish or sharp a work piece that must show a high surface quality, accuracy of shape and dimensions.
SAND BLASTING UNIT: Sand blasting is effective for rapidly removing heavy or tightly adherent scale (produced due to heat treatment or welding before acid pickling.)
Type of work for which it is used, include heavily scaled part sections, forging and parts made of straight chromium steel that have developed a tightly adhering scale during heat treatment or welding.
ELECTRO- POLISHING: Electro-polishing process is the process of smoothening a metal surface anodically in required chemical solution.
ULTRASONIC CLEANING: It is an ideal process for cleaning. In ultrasonic cleaning (operation), a cleaning solution subjected to the rapid oscillation of longitudinal wave similar to sound wave, but of much higher frequency.
GOLD PLATING: This process consists of immersing the instruments to be coated in a solution of the gold to be plated
PASSIVATION: During handling and processing operations such as Forging, Machining and Forming; particles of Iron, tool, steel or shop dirt may be embedded in or smeared on the surface of stainless steel components. These components may reduce the effectiveness of natural oxide (passive) film that forms on stainless steel instruments.
Chemical Etching: Putting the various marks or printing or stamping on finished stainless steel instrument according to the customer's instruction.
Laser itching: Putting various marks and instrument code on each piece with high precision, difficult to erase and rapid technique using our laser marking system.
Bar-coding sytem: LifeCare uses EAN 13 (European Article Numbering) Barcode for labeling its product because it is not required to label all products with detailed information. All information required is stored in the database and can be accessed via the barcode number; it is also fast and safe because there is no way to make a mistake. An EAN-13 bar code consists of 12 digits for the product code followed by a check digit.
(B) The next 4 digits indicate LifeCare reference number (1005).
(C) Another 5 digits indicate the product UMDNS reference number, FDA reference number, LifeCare reference code, and the description of the product.
(D) The last digit is a check digit, which is used to make sure that the bar code reader at the checkout has read the product code correctly.
